Kevin Hines: Surviving and Thriving After a Suicide Attempt

Welcome back to the podcast! I have an incredible episode for all of you today. Not only is this an INSPIRING conversation about the fragility of life and the unbelievable story of my guest…but also this is a conversation that could save lives. I recently had the honor to sit down with Kevin Hines, who in 2000 leapt off the Golden Gate Bridge, a suicide attempt that has resulted in death for most that have made the jump.  But Kevin miraculously survived. And in the 16 years since his nearly fatal try, he has become the bridge between the many mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, spouses, friends, and loved ones who made similar acts. Kevin sits on the board of the international foundation of the bridge rail foundation, the mental health association of San Francisco, and on the survivors committee of the national suicide prevention hotline. He is the author of the book “Cracked, Not Broken: Surviving and Thriving After a Suicide Attempt.” So listen in and enjoy this very important message about choosing life, discovering why you are here, and much more.  You can reach Kevin online at  & Learn more at
